zeidan created the topic: Flight Recorder enhancements
It's been a long time since our last conversation.
I'm coming here to bring Flight Recorder functionality back to enhancements.
I've got to receive Flight Recorder data in my server, which solved the security issues (authenticity and integrity of flight data). Thanks a lot for this.
In my tests, I noted Flight Recorder is passing the following data during the flight:
All the job works nicely, except by two aspects:
The Flight Report shwon at the end of recording is not sent to the server as the above data are. So, the server doesn't know when a flight ends an a new flight starts. Can you implement a change to force Flight Recorder to send the Flight Report to the server at the end of flight recording?
The 'landinglights' variable name and value are sent together with 'vs' variable value, as you can see in the image attached. Although it can be easily adjusted in serverside, I suppose you want to correct any kind of errors, no matter how critical they are.
Beyond the above feedbacks, the main reason of this topic is to suggest some more data to be transfered to the server:
1. Events registered permanently during the flight:
PARKING BRAKES SET/RELEASED
BEACON LIGHT ON/OFF
NAV LIGHT ON/OFF
TAXI LIGHT ON/OFF
STROBE LIGHT ON/OFF
EXCESSIVE BANK ANGLE WARNING
2. Data registered after flight
The Flight Report Flight Recorder already produces but doesn't send AND the items bellow:
TAKE-OFF SPEED (while rotating)
LANDING SPEED (just after the touchdown)
LANDING VERTICAL SPEED (last 2 readings of 30 seconds before touchdown)
TOTAL DISTANCE FLOWN
TOTAL FUEL ONBOARD AT ENGINES STARTUP
TOTAL FUEL BURNT WHILE ENGINES ON
TOTAL AIRCRAFT WEIGHT AT TAKE-OFF
3. Contact for further requests
Itried to contact you via Skype 'sillo1' for other deals, but without response. Can you check your skype to accept my friendship request? If you prefer, we can use e-mails changes as a very powerful tool to record information.
